FJ Feddersen has been in the barrel manufacturing business for almost 40 years. Located in East Tennessee since 2000, the manufacturing facility features top-of-the-line machinery. Mills, lathes, CNC machines, heat-treating ovens, and more fill the 17,500 square foot shop floor.
Due to Fred Feddersen’s single-edge polygonal rifling (SEPR), Dale Arenson was responsible for the new Light Gun World Record. To win the record, Arenson used a 50 caliber BMG rifle barrel with an almost perfect score (298/300). Feddersen actually owns dual-patents on the SEPR design.
In addition to barrel blanks in 6.5 Creedmoor and 5.56, the company also manufacturers 10/22 button rifled barrels and match-grade 10/22 complete rifles.
The Tennessee-based barrel manufacturer expanded their manufacturing line in late 2017, offering 1911 barrels in 9mm/10mm/45ACP, but are not available on their website as of yet.
As a result of their 1911 barrel success, FJ Feddersen will soon launch a line of Glock barrels. These barrels are already expected to outperform standard Glock barrels (as tested/reviewed by Major Pandemic) by as much as a 48% group improvement.
Release dates are not available for the Glock barrels yet. Feddersen’s new barrels are expected to be made specifically for the G17 and G19. Threaded and non-threaded options are being considered for the launch.
All Federssen barrels are made from heat-treated Chrome Moly steel. The bentz chambering and uniform bore design ensure match-grade quality at an affordable price point.
More 10/22 Goodness
Recently, Feddersen expanded their line of CNC capabilities. The manufacturer now offers 10/22 alloy receivers as well. These receivers were designed to fit all Ruger standard parts, barrels and BX-triggers assemblies. Available in a bronze alloy, nickel alloy, and aluminum, these receivers are available on their website for between $275 – $375.
All serialized parts must be shipped to a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL), pending the passing of a successful background check.
